Whether you’re trying to keep mature content away from prying young eyes, making sure only certain users are able to make purchases, or want to allow certain purchases but not others, Vudu has easy to use parental controls to make your life and your family movie night easier.
Simply navigate to the Settings (or gear icon) section on your TV, mobile, or streaming device to set a 4-digit PIN and designate which program ratings you’d like to restrict for purchasing and viewing.
No more accidental purchases or uncomfortable discussions, and each device is controlled separately so you can customize permissions on the kids’ and family screens while leaving your personal devices free of restriction.
The interface and options vary a little by device and platform (no parental controls on web browsers at the moment, for example), but the end goal is the same: a worry-free viewing experience for you and your family.
Set up parental controls today and enjoy some streaming peace of mind.
Whether you’re tearing through a season of your favorite show, hosting a movie marathon, or browsing the latest new releases, it all starts with working Wi-Fi. Here are a few helpful hints for ensuring your home internet streams like a dream.
1. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Not all router locations are created equal. Placing your Wi-Fi router in an open space (not a closed cabinet), elevated off of the ground, and close to the center of your home can help boost performance for all your home’s devices.
2. EXTEND YOUR REACH
Need more coverage in the parts of your home farthest from the router? Adding a Wi-Fi extender or two to your network can help get your signal to the farthest reaches of your space.
3. WHEN IN DOUBT, REBOOT
Turning it off and on again may be cliche, but that’s because it works. If you’re dealing with slow speeds, repeated errors, or spotty coverage, a simple hard reset can often set things right.
4. IF IT AIN’T BROKE, DO FIX IT
Replacing electronics is never going to be our first choice, but Wi-Fi routers do tend to get better and more reliable over time as new technologies emerge. Replacing your router every few years before it breaks down will make sure you’re getting the most bang for your internet bucks.
5. INVEST IN SUCCESS
If you’re ready to go state-of-the-art, replacing your traditional Wi-Fi router with a mesh network will get you top-tier Wi-Fi throughout your entire space for uninterrupted, high-quality streaming.
